Default unusual Trowa drum kit

In the city of Kharkov, I bought an incomplete drum set Trowa with an unusual interesting pattern of drum perloid. As for the details of mounting the rims, mounting the viola and the big drum, the installation was made in the 50s of the last century. The fact is that the diameter of the big drum is 22 ", not 20", as it was in those years.
I have never met the big drums of Trowa with a diameter of 22 ". The German producer of drums of Trowa began to release the big drums of such a diameter only after renaming the factory to Tacton and with the beginning of the production of second-generation drums of Tacton from the 80s

Dear George, please confirm your words with photographs if you know (think that you know) the subject is good.I have NEVER seen the drums of Trowa which included the 22 "big drum. I only saw three advertising pictures of Trova of the 50s, but I never saw that the size of a large drum was indicated.

Default Re: unusual Trowa drum kit

Apart from these Trowa advertising brochures, nothing came across on the Internet. Without written confirmation of the size of the drums, taking into account that all large drums are mounted with six bolts, the size is 20 ".In my particular case, the rim of the big drum is attached to eight bolts.
"There are a bunch of advert broshures 1950-1990 where all is clear and a lot of pics of real drums on this pages." -Where is all this located? I did not find.

If you meant Tacton brochures, then this is completely different.
